Unfortunately, this AUD recording is not great. I'm frankly not as keen on it as some of the other reviewers are so it has me jumping around to other audio streams. After the first set I hop over to the Jim Bennett transfer (shnf 1289) for the set two opening Samson and Delilah. It's followed by a sweet Roses. Then, I'm off to the FMSBD (shnf 248). It's by far the best recording in the archive, but the track listing is all out of whack. At any rate, it features the meat of the second set, from The Wheel through to Dancin', the definite show highlights.
Subject: 2nd Set Wow!
Subject: nothing wrong
Subject: Nice aud
Subject: Best AUD ever
Subject: A real mixed bag, very much worth listening
I don't know. I WANT to give this show a higher rating. The playing is awesome...but there's something kind of FLAT about its awesomeness, despite the intricate second set list. I recall Garcia, in an interview, saying something about when the music gets TOO perfect: so perfect that it's actually boring. I think that's what's affecting me here: there's a certain tension missing--the tension, as Garcia said, between TRYING to do something and actually doing it. I think my favorite shows are the ones where I really don't know if they're going to hit that magic high, and then BAM, they hit it. In this show I get no feeling of suspension: it's all sugar and no lemon, and I like a good dose of sour with my sweet.
Take my rating with a grain of salt: even I have to spend too much time explaining it, and I don't really understand it myself. I think this show is like a heavy dose of acid: so much of the enjoyability depends on your set and setting. Maybe I'm just not in the right mood today. Great show, but...hmmm. I don't know.

Subject: Hey, Hippie Joe!
Stay away from the balllllooooooons! :D
I give this one a five. I don't care about sound quality. Any show that opens with a jammin' Sugaree, and gives you a Wheel AND a Comes a Time in the second set is tops with me!
Subject: A Blank CD Costs Like A Dollar Man
If it was thirty years ago maybe it would be ten cents but hen only some computer dudes would even know what it is and it would be classified..
76 shows are all hot in my opinion, and 77s are usually overrated.
Because a lot of newbies started going to shows in 77
Worth the downlowd even at a dollar something :)
Subject: Worth a listen

Subject: DEFINITE KEEPER........
Subject: This is my Show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I recorded this show on a Sony 153TDC. One of only three shows that I ever recorded. I can hear myself talking at a couple points if the show and we didn't get the tape recorder running until Sugaree had started and when it cut it, the volume was too loud......whatever.
It's one of my favorite shows of all time, myabe my favorite I ever attended. I came to the site tonight just to see if I could find a better version and what a trip to find out that it's my show being offered.
Wow, it's my show!
4 star for recording, 5 star performance. I don;t have the originals any more but have the 2ns generation.
Subject: Worth listening to
